In December 2018 I decided that our 2019 word of the year would be “adventure.” In my heart and gut I just knew that 2019 would be adventurous…because I wanted it to be. And my, oh my, was it ever. Wynston and I traveled to 12 states, I grew as a confident woman, and I started dating a man who would forever change me. It was a year to remember, although it definitely wasn’t easy.
Dog owners totally get the meaning of ‘dog days of summer’. I know my 9 year old terrier would be content to lay in front of a sunny window the entire day. It’s more like the dog days of summer, winter, spring and fall in my house. Yet, all I have to do is walk past the leash, put on his dog boots and he’s racing to the door. Dogs actually like consistency and routine as much as humans. But what’s the right balance between lazing around and exercising? Consider these three points when determining the amount of exercise your beloved pooch needs.

Wynston and I have a boundless amount of travel experience. We mostly adventure in our car (although sometimes we do fly), and there are several items that I will not leave home without when we do.
Typically we travel to moderate or warm climates, where bringing specialty items isn’t necessary. However, you definitely need to consider packing differently if you’re heading to a cold part of the world. Here’s my personal list of cold weather travel essentials for dog moms.

Ever since Wynston was about 6 months old, he’s had an issue with coughing. At first, the vet thought perhaps it was just due to getting acclimated to the air outside of the puppy mill. As time went on, the vet thought maybe he had a collapsed trachea, as it’s common in small breed dogs. Well, Wynston’s coughing got progressively worse as time passed. The episodes of honking and coughing went from once a week, to multiple times a day over three years. Thankfully I’ve come up with a home remedy to treat tracheal collapse in dogs, and now his episodes are rare.
